Question

There are 14 ice cream shops in a town, and they have the following property: Ice cream shop number j sells j flavors of ice cream (Shop number 1 sells 1 flavor, shop number 2 sells 2 flavors... shop number 14 sells 14 flavors). A client randomly chooses an ice cream shop, and once inside, buys a scoop in each of the flavors available.

As part of a special offer, the client receives a lottery
scratch card for each scoop of ice cream bought. On each scratch
card, there is one number from the set {1, 2, . . . , 21}.
Calculate the probability that the client entered ice cream shop
number 2, if the number on **all** of the scratch
cards was 1.

Answer #1

P( A | B ) = P (A and B) / P(B)

P( Shop = 2 | all scratch card =1 ) = P ( Shop = 2 and all scratch card =1) / P (all scratch card =1)

First we calculate,

P (all scratch card =1) = P( all scratch card =1 | Shop = 1) * P(Shop=1) + P( all scratch card =1 | Shop = 2) * P(Shop=2) ......+ P( all scratch card =1 | Shop = 14) * P(Shop=14)

Basically, this is a equation of calculating total probability,

P (all scratch card =1) = 1/21 * 1/14 + 1/21*1/21*1/14 + 1/21*1/21*1/21*1/14......+ (1/21)^14*1/14

= (1/21 * 1/14* ( 1 - (1/21)^14 ) )/ (1-1/21) = 0.00357142857

P ( Shop = 2 and all scratch card =1) = 1/14 * 1/21 * 1/21 = 0.00016196954

Thus,

P( Shop = 2 | all scratch card =1 ) = 0.00016196954/ 0.00357142857 = 0.0453514

Vanilla and Continental Mocha. Into each quart of Creamy Vanilla go
2 eggs and 3 cups of cream. Into each quart of Continental Mocha go
1 egg and 3 cups of cream. You have in stock 600 eggs and 1050 cups
of cream. You make a profit of $3 on each quart of Creamy Vanilla
and $2 on each quart of Continental Mocha. How many quarts of each

Consider an ice cream company with two stores. Each store has
the same production function 2L^(0.5)* K^(0.5), where K is the
number of ice cream machines and L is the number of workers. Store
1 has 4 machines, whereas Store 2 has I machine. a) If the ice
cream company employs 20 workers then how many should it employ at
each shop? b) Is it better to employ another worker, or purchase
another ice cream machine for Store 2? Assume...

A local ice cream shop wants to see if they should promote a new
swizzleberry swirl or creamsicle flavored drink. In order to
determine which one to promote, they took a sample of 80 patrons
and asked them to choose which they preferred. The one that is
significantly preferred over the other (at a .05 level of
significance) will be promoted. It is expected that an equal number
of patrons will choose each flavor.

Your company has been granted an exclusive license to sell ice
cream. No one has ever sold ice cream here before, so you have no
idea what the demand will look like. You suspect that people like
to buy more ice cream on hotter days, but you are very unsure about
what price you should charge to maximize your profit.
Over your first season selling ice cream, you vary your price
each week for the 10 weeks your license allows...
